The Guide to Travel Physical Therapy & Psychology – A Randy Bowling Movement Conversation

I recently had the pleasure of talking about all things travel PT and psychology with my dear friend, Randy “The Dolph” Bowling.

Travelin’ fam

Randy has been a traveling physical therapist for almost 10 years now, and has a substantial knowledge base on the traveling process. He also is very much into psychology, and thought me a few things.

You can find Randy on facebook and Instagram.

Here were some of the topics discussed:

  • Why Randy chose to become a traveler
  • How to best interact with travel companies
  • How to network with other travelers
  • The need for negotiation
  • What do travel contracts look like
  • What does the interview process look like
  • What makes a good traveler
  • Randy’s thoughts on psychology
  • How important is focusing on pain?
  • Why Randy is a big fan of Louis Gifford

Here is the video, audio, and scroll down to read the modified transcript.

Enjoy!

A Conversation on Learning with Lance Goyke and Jason Byrne

I recorded a really good conversation with two good buddies of mine, Lance Goyke and Jason Byrne.

Lance is a strength coach, photographer, student, and writer. He runs the show at IFAST University, coaches at IFAST, and runs his own excellent blog and Youtube channel. He is also a dear friend of mine, one of the first people I met when I interned with Bill Hartman at IFAST.

Jason is an Athletic Trainer at Brandeis University and with the Boston Cannons. He is an avid learner, tinkerer, and phenomenal human being. I truly admire his ability to connect with others, his humility, and comfort with learning from failures. Check him out on Twitter or email him at jbyrneatc@gmail.com

We went off the top of the dome on this one, as there was no agenda. I was just hoping to help better all of our learning processes.

We got that…and then some!

Here were some of the topics we covered:

  • Designing a learning process
  • Test-Retest
  • Failure
  • Being comfortable being uncomfortable
  • Connecting with others
  • How to learn
  • Study habits
  • and more

If video isn’t your thing, I have a transcript of our conversation below.
